Who: Masumi Goldman and Laura Kasperzak, co-founders of Two Fit Moms
Best fitness advice ever received: "Take baby steps. Nobody ever said that exercise must include an hour-long cardio session followed by weight training and a 45-minute yoga flow. Even ten to 15 minutes is worthwhile. All of your efforts are cumulative. If you have time for 15 minutes of exercise in the morning, do it. If you have another 15 minutes for a brisk walk during your lunch break, do that, too. And of course, if you have 15 minutes for yoga before bed, fit it in. You don’t need long stretches of time to make a difference in your life."
Favorite pre- or post-workout snack: "Taste Nirvana Coconut Water (12 for $29). We are not big fans of coconut water, but this particular brand is the exception. It’s incredibly delicious—we think it’s like cake in a bottle."
Favorite workout gear: "We love long yoga leggings ($74) that can be pulled over the heels, and loose-fitting, flowy tank tops ($25) with sports bras ($22) underneath."
Gym bag beauty essential: "There’s only one product that we both carry in our bags—China Gel ($21). It’s a topical soothing cream that we rub onto our muscles after practicing yoga. The cooling sensation of the cream makes our sore bodies feel great."
Go-to Exercise: Energizing Yoga-Inspired Sequence (10 minutes)
"As busy mothers, we are on a constant quest to find just the right balance between work, family, exercise and relaxation. We understand that on some days, it’s just not possible to find a long block of time for an extensive workout. On days like this, commit to a series of short ten-minute exercise routines that will keep you energized, limber and feeling strong. Try this energizing yoga sequence that combines core work, leg work and backbends. Practice the whole sequence on the right side of your body first, and then repeat steps one through five on the left side."
